I stayed one night on business, and the hotel was booked for me, so I had no idea what to expect. I immediately loved the quirkiness of the water tower, and the beautiful way it had been restored inside and out, with lots of exposed brickwork, tall arches and a 360 degree balcony all around the floor my room was...

What an amazing hotel! The very friendly lady at the reception was very welcoming, was able to speak in many languages and made us happy with a double upgrade. Great, if you have a prettier room available why not offer it to your clients? It made us feel special! The room (suite) was a beautiful, spacious, light accomodation with a... More

(water tower). it was expensive but i tought worth it. actually according to the experience we had, the price of a hostel or camping would habe been more appropriate. we arrived late and we had...

The managing staff was completely unprofessional & rude upon check in. We had a room booked for one suite & one regular room. They had assigned us the wrong room. Instead of correcting or even admitting the mistake, we were told that was the room that was booked & dismissed. When another co-worker had approached the reception with the same... More

stayed 2 nights. Location is ok, short walk to main attractions. Staff were not very pleasant except for the barman who we had a great chat with (as he had completed his apprenticeship in Ireland!) The rooms are quirky but get far too warm = no sleep I'm afraid.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in December 2014. The hotel staff were excellent from arrival to departure and nothing was too much effort. The room was in great condition (a few marks/small stains if you want to be picky!) and was cleaned to a good level on a daily basis. We ordered room service during our stay,... More

After receiving my night in the Hotel on New Years Eve as a present, I checked trip advisor and I was a bit worried about the reviews on cleanliness, tired furniture etc and poor welcome at reception. I can say that I had no need to worry everything was fantastic, I was a very satisfied guest. Enjoy the design of... More

A great hotel. Interesting architecture. Breakfast is expensive as is the parking. The rooms are great, plenty of space and excellent service. Our pillows were less than ideal though (no additional pillows in the cupboard).

I choose Hotel im Wasserturm as I have stayed at SLH hotels before and really like the quality and service. The building looks stunning and the architecture has been well preserved and made into a great property. Breakfast was good and as an SLH member, was complimentary and the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. I don't think however... More

What a spectacular looking building from the outside! Matched only by how well the interior space has been created. Floating walkways join the the central column of the old water tower to the rooms. The exposed brickwork and Christmas decorations all made for a very attractive setting from which time explore cologne in December. I stayed in a Deluxe Double... More
